http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/10807637/Miley-Cyrus-could-not-come-in-like-a-wrecking-ball-without-serious-injury-scientists-conclude.html

 

Scientists at the University of Leicester did a study to see if a woman of Miley Cyrus height, weight and size would really be able to "come in like a wrecking ball’ without sustaining ‘significant injury’"

 

The euqation for the velocity of a wrecking ball (top) and Cyrus (bottom)

 

The results also found:

"...Cyrus would need to be travelling at around 316mph to demolish a wall – meaning she would need to be propelled by an outside force."

Those kind of stuff eventually lead to advancement of science, technology, and knowledge......

 

Although not necessarily in that order, and not necessarily all of them :trollface:

What's wrong with her sustaining serious injury upon entry? We don't have to deal with all the prep, and get to see the results. This is always a win/win for the audience. Kind of like sunflower seeds already shelled. Not really worth it on their own, but amazingly good when they're already done for you:teethhappy:

 

No but seriously she needs to stop being desperate for the limelight. Her 15 minutes are up, pass the mic. You too Justin - you're trying too hard.

To be completely honest, this wouldn't take that long to calculate.

 

Edit: No, i'm not trying to troll. These are the kind of equations you work with in Physics 12.

And this is why i am currently a Biology Major.... Amazing how much time it gives me to screw around on the internet. :P

Time to test the hypothesis. We need one Miley and a large air cannon. Oh, and a wall.

Miley Cyrus should be propelled to 316 MPH. At a brick wall.

Let's make it a double-layer wall for added entertainment. :tongue:

Probably the result of a bunch of scientists being bored one day and deciding on a whim to see whether it would work or not. xD

Now that I think of it, if Miley Cyrus has to travel at 316 to break through a wall... 

 

A lot of action movies/super hero movies show someone being thrown through a wall... well... how fast people are shown flying in movies this means that they should of not been able to penetrate the wall at all... Not the first time Hollywood movies have gotten things wrong.

Well, it's willing suspension of disbelief. If it looks cool and the movie doesn't call upon it, people tend to not care about it. 

 

And superheroes are superhuman. You can suspend your disbelief if you think that because they must have a load of secondary required superpowers not shown on screen they are able to do things that normal humans cannot.

Someone needs to propel that chick at 3000mph into space. Let her annoy some other planet.

Me trying to figure out how the math looks like in Physics 12...

If they couldn't figure that out without going to the lengths they went, they need their degrees revoked and helmets. She's not The Juggernaut so there no way she could have went through someone's house in the exact same manner and force as a wrecking ball. 

 

I didn't need a Phd to figure that out, I just need common sense.

Can we PLEASE, PLEASE try this experimentally.

Oh, we already know that. I'm sure they know the same as well. But they just wanted to know how much force and speed was required for someone or something weighing as much as Cyrus to break down a wall.

 

Yeah, we know that it's physically impossible without massive damage, but it's fun just to figure out how absurd the idea is by calculating values.

"massive damage" I don't think we care whether or not she'd be OK, we want to know what KIND of damage she'd sustain

Ahahah. I second the motion that this experiment should be carried out asap.
